  • 1 cup chopped carrots
  • 1 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1 cup chopped sugar snap peas
  • 1 cup chopped purple cabbage

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon cashew butter, or peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 teaspoons tamari, or soy sauce (I like to use low sodium)
  • 1 teaspoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon rice wine vinegar

Instructions

  1. Add the chopped greens to a large bowl and top with chickpeas and all the chopped vegetables.
